    Gaza launches ‘Return Park’ along Israel fence [Wafa Aludaini/Middle East Monitor]

    The Committee of the Great Return March opened a park east of Gaza city in an effort to encourage residents to use the area near the Gaza fence.

    The park, located near the fence between Gaza and Israel, has been set up in the area which has been deemed “unliveable” as a result of Israeli violence in the area. Called the “Return Park”, the area includes a playground for children. Ibrahim Musallam, media coordinator for the committee, said: “The occupation kills life in the buffer zones, so we shall revive these lands by encouraging people to visit without fear of being killed. The park is over 700 metres away from the fence.”

    “This place was used for waste collections but from now on it will be a place of joy. We are willing to revive all the border areas from Rafah to Beit Hanoun in order to benefit from these large spaces,” he added. (...)

    Civilian Succumbed to his wounds in northern Gaza Strip:

    At approximately 12:30 on Monday, 07 October 2019, the Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip declared the death of Fadi Osama Ramadan Hejazi (20), from Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza Strip, after he succumbed to the wounds he sustained at GMR.

    According to PCHR’s investigations, on 22 February 2019, Hejazi sustained serious wounds after he was shot with a live bullet in the thighs in eastern Jabalia, damaging his veins, tendons and arteries. He sustained additional wounds on 19 April 2019, as he was shot with a live bullet in the right knee in eastern al-Buraij camp protests in the central Gaza Strip. As a result, Hejazi suffered from another cut in the veins and arteries. Hejazi later suffered from blockage of arteries leading to a coma. At approximately 14:00 on Sunday, 06 October 2019, Hejazi was taken to the Indonesian Hospital and doctors said that he suffered from clots. He was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU); unfortunately, he was pronounced dead at approximately 09:30 on Monday, 07 October 2019. Hejazi was transferred to the Forensic Medicine Department in al-Shifa Hospital to reveal the cause of death; the forensic report identified the complications of thrombosis in the blood vessels in the lower extremities as the cause of death. Therefore, the Palestinian Ministry of Health officially announced that Hejazi’s death was caused by his wounds.

      Ali al-Ashqar venait de lancer une pierre quand on lui a tiré dessus. Le jeune homme de 17 ans s’est immédiatement effondré sur le sol.

      Nabil Masoud se tenait à proximité. Avec deux secouristes, il s’est précipité pour essayer d’aider Ali.

      « Mais le tireur d’élite israélien a commencé à tirer sur quiconque s’approchait de l’enfant », a déclaré Masoud. « Pendant environ 17 minutes, personne n’a pu parvenir jusque Ali. Il était clair que le soldat israélien voulait que l’enfant se vide de son sang et meurt. Et c’est ce qui s’est réellement passé. »

      Finalement, les secouristes ont pu parvenir jusqu’à Ali. Mais c’était trop tard.

    GAZA, Friday, July 05, 2019 (WAFA) – At least 41 Palestinians were injured by live bullets or rubber-coated rounds today as Israeli forces attacked thousands of protesters taking part in the weekly Great March of Return at Gaza-Israel border, according to medical sources.

    Soldiers manning the separation fence fired live bullets and rubber-coated steel rounds at the protesters who gathered at many encampments along the border, injuring 22 protesters by live bullets and 19 others by rubber-coated rounds.

    Some of the wounded were moved to hospital and others were treated in the field hospitals.

    Over 300 Palestinians have been killed and about 17,000 others injured by Israeli forces since the outbreak of the Great March of Return protests at Gaza border on March 30, 2018.

    The weekly protests call for lifting the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip and for the return of the Palestinian refugees to their ancestral homes in pre-1948 Palestine.
